Q: Touchpad scroll doesn't work after shutdown or res...

Every time I shutdown or restart my computer, the touchpad scroll settings stop working. I have to manually go into the control panel and turn it off and back on. The touchpad itself works fine; it's just vertical and horizontal scroll that doesn't work. Is there a driver or something I can download to fix this? Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have tried downloading the Alps drivers and the Synaptics, but neither of them solve this issue and it is really annoying. PLEASE HELP.

I updated my computer about 1/2 weeks ago and the 2 touch scroll feature doesn't work. I went to advanced touchpad settings to see if I could fix it there but the results were that it is on. I went to check if maybe I did it wrong and sure enough it still
didn't work at all. Can you please either give me a step by step guide on fixing this or a link to a bit of software that fixes this?
And yes the touchpad is up to date, the system won't even let me click it.

Hello, I can't get the touchpad scrolling to work with Windows. I tried installing/reinstalling and updating the driver but nothing worked. I tried installing Ubuntu on the laptop, and there I got multitouch scrolling even without drivers, so I don't really think the touchpad can't support scrolling.I'm running latest Windows 10 with latest drivers from Lenovo support page. Why is this problem? Is it the Windows or the official drivers for Windows are bugged?(It won't work with 7/8.1 either, tried them all)

Help please!

Try going to the toshiba page for your laptop, click downloads, and change the OS to Vista (or Vista x64). You'll notice if you select "Touchpad" from the list, they do not list Windows 7 at all, only XP and Vista. However, the Synaptics driver package for Vista should work just fine.

Okay, I think this question is too in depth and will be hard to answer, but if anyone could help out that'd be great.

I was deleting files because I had a virus kind of absentmindedly. I realize this was stupid of me. But everytime the computer told me it "found" a virus (which it really wasn't deleting because the virus was taking over) it was a file with a MS in front of it. So, while I was deleting files (Task Manager/Processing), I deleted anything with MS. But then when I finally got the virus to stop working my middle button of a three-button mouse scroll thing is not working so that I cannot scroll on websites or the like. Its not like it's absolutely horrible that it doesn't work anymore, it's just annoying.

I have a Dell Latitude E6400. Does anyone know how I can get the middle of the three-button mouse to work?

I attempted to do System Restore, but the virus wiped out all of the restore dates on my computer so for some reason I cannot click a date.

Hi, i've been searching this issue on Google with literal no topic about it so i'll just make the first one here:

From a time i have an A4Tech V7 Gaming mouse that works perfect in Windows 7. Since a few weeks ago, after Microsoft deployed a patch on Windows 10, my scrolling wheel stopped working both on softwares and games. After 1-2 restarts it would go away and this kept on for about a week, and i guess after that, another patch was deployed that fixed it. Last night a new patch was deployed that returned the issue and this time, even after 3 restarts the scroll still doesn't work. Is there anything to be done so i don't have to wait anymore for those guys?

Clicking the scroll [Mouse3] works, scrolling up and down is what doesn't work.

Anyone out there have experience with the lsit box vertical scroll bar not working properly in MS Access (Office 2003 Professional)?

All office updates are installed.

I have tried this on two separate machines with identical results.

I create a list box on an unbound form and set the list box data source to query a table.

The list box displays with the verticle scroll bar over on the right as it should be but clicking the scroll bar does nothing. It is as if the scroll bar isn't there. When I click or click and drag on the scroll bar, the row(s) behind that part of the scroll bar get highlighted just as if I were clicking on them (the rows) and not on the scroll bar.

Now, I got it to work but in an odd way... If, afer opening the form, I manually click to bring the focus to some other window on the computer or even some other form within the same application and then set the focus back to the form in question, then the scroll bar works properly.

I will try to build a workaround by having another form "lead-in" to the form bearing the listbox/scroll bar.

Has anyone else encountered this and come up with a more elegant solution?

I've been given an old IBM running Windows NT 4.0. The mouse it came with is a MS Intellimouse 1.2A PS/2, and the scroll wheel is not working. I tried reinstalling the driver that was on the computer. I also downloaded a driver file called vmouse.vxd, after hunting around the web for a bit, but I don't know where to copy this file to.
Is there any hope of getting the scroll wheel to work on WinNT?

Hi, My apologies for asking something which has been asked and answered in many variations, but none of which has helped much.

I have three Win7 Home Premium x64 PCs called BoyToy (my main PC), Salsa, and Polka, all of which are wired to a D-Link DIR-655 router. I want to wake and shutdown Salsa and Polka from BoyToy using Aquila?s WakeOnLan utility (which can also control non-Windows PCs) or something similar.

After enabling the BIOS and Win7 settings, I?m able to ?Wake On LAN? both computers from BoyToy (yeah!) but I?m stuck on the Shutdown side?and I?ve tried many different combinations of utilities and settings.

Most recently, I?ve run Aquila?s Listener (part of their WOL utility) on Salsa with its Win7 firewall turned off and no AV running. Listener detects WOL messages sent from BoyToy (not surprising since WOL works) but it doesn?t detect Shutdown messages. From BoyToy, I?ve sent the shutdown message to different router addresses (255.255.255.255, 0.0.0.0, 192.168.1.255, and Salsa?s address) and the results are always the same: WOL detected; shutdown not.

I?m stuck because I don?t even understand how Shutdown is supposed to work in Win7. I?ve found lots of WOL documentation but not for Shutdown. I assume it?s totally different than WOL since the computer to be shutdown is awake so it has an IP address, the Shutdown message contains timer info, warning text, etc.

Hi Team, When I am using my laptop while sitting on a couch, it seems to get warm really easily and then the touchpad seems to stop working. It operates very funny and tries to change the screen size. I have to reset the Synaptics pointing devices everytime it hangs. If I keep it on a stand or hard cover, then it seems to work better and it barely hangs. Would you know as to why that happens frequently as I travel a lot and can't find a support to put in underneath everytime. Thanks for your help. Regards Sidd

I don't get why my touchpad doesn't work when I unplug or turn off my mouse. I found all the settings. I realize I may get an answer I don't want. Download drivers etc..

I can live with this problem (unless I suddenly don't have my other laptop), especially after spending the night searching for, downloading and installing drivers for my other laptop. I was surprised to find that the windows 7 professional (my home machine is windows 7 home) didn't provide me with network and other drivers. I wasn't seeing any wireless connections. Initially I was using an internet stick and the problem wasn't visible. I take that machine out with me. I had it home last night and that's when I found the problem. And trying to get that touchpad driver had me wondering about this one. I don't use my laptop keyboard on my home machine, preferring a natural contour full keyboard I plug in, so I never deal with the touchpad, otherwise I'd be hitting it all the time, which I used to do. I am a mouse guy. If I had to to take this machine out, the touchpad thing would drive me nuts. Any thoughts?
 

A:Touchpad doesn't work

Hi Aarby,

Some computers have keyboard shortcuts which could be a separate key on the keypad or a combination of the Fn + any other Function key depending on the system model for enabling or disabling the touchpad. Since you have not mentioned the system model of your computer, some steps you may try are:

1.Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings>Click Enable (if disabled).

2.Check under Mouse Properties in Control Panel>Hardware>Mouse. There may be a check-box for Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present. If this is checked and you connect an external mouse to your laptop, the touchpad may be disabled.

Additionally, we recommend you check the system manual or try some of the steps mentioned in the link below.

Hope this helps resolve the issue. Please reply if you have further queries.

A:Touchpad often doesn't work

I have recently dealt with this same issue on an Asus laptop. The touchpad does not function correctly, but the issue is sporadic. A USB mouse works fine.

The first thing I needed to determine was if this was a hardware problem or a software problem (OS or Drivers).

So what I did was wait until the touchpad stopped working and then rebooted with a Linux Ubuntu USB stick connected. Booting into Ubuntu I found the touchpad still did not respond. This told me that the problem was hardware. The touchpad has to be replaced.

So that is what I would suggest. You need to know what kind of problem you are dealing with so you know in which direction to focus your efforts.

Ubuntu for USB here:

(You have the option to "Try It" or "Install". You just need to try it)

First off, I really like my P71.  It is a workhorse.  I have but 1 problem with it.  Shortly after purchasing this machine, the touch pad will not enable if I either remove my mouse, or do not have one connected.  If I boot the machine code, with out a mouse connected, it still doesn't work.  The ONLY way I can use my touchpad is to turn on the window setting that tells the touchpad to stay enabled with the mouse connected. I've tried diabling, uninstalling the software, and still nothing.  Getting quite annoying to have to remember to flip that switch if I might want to use the touchpad without the mouse somewhere.  Although i've gotten quite good at the keys to get me to that setting. Thoughts?

Hello! So yesterday morning my laptop completely shut down and I couldn't figure out what was happening. I had things to do, so I left it. When I came home, I opened it up and found out that the entire thing had been updated to Windows 10, and I don't know how since I never gave permission. Anyways, I figured there was nothing I could do so I got over it. But as the day went on, I discovered that my touchpad doesn't work whatsoever. I searched this problem and heard that I'm supposed to tick scrolling off in settings. Since then, two finger scrolling works, but NOTHING ELSE (even though all the boxes are ticked). This is very frustrating because I now can only use my laptop with a mouse, which means it's basically a computer for the time being.

Try reinstalling the chipset driver, and then installing the touchpad driver.Driver: http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

would be great if the right click on my synaptic touchpad worked. Was fine until I moved from win7 to win 10.

If the touchpad works (not defective), and only started the behavior since moving to 10, then I would guess it is a problem with the touchpad driver.

It could be due to the wrong driver being installed, a corrupted driver installation, or a driver conflict.
Since the generic Windows 10 touchpad driver seems to work well with Synaptics hardware for most folks, we can start with a bad driver install.

The first thing to try is to go into Device Manager and uninstall the touchpad. If asked to remove the driver also, do so. Then restart the laptop and the touchpad will be reinstalled with the same driver. Test.

Otherwise, go to the laptop manufacturer's website and find the most recent driver offered there for your touchpad. Try and install that driver and test.

Hi! I bought yesterday a new Acer V3-111P. I tried to install windows 8.1 and at the beggining of the install my touchpad didn't work. My screentouch is working pretty well, so I installed windows 8.1. I've tried other touchpad drivers too, but my touchpad still won't work. Anybody has idea why it isn't working? Thanks hopefully
